  • Publication number: 20220359261
    Abstract: A substrate transfer apparatus includes a base, an arm, an end effector provided at a tip of the arm and having first and second tip portions that are bifurcated, a light emitting unit, a light receiving unit, and a control device controlling an operation of the arm. The control device controls an operation of the arm so that light straightly traveling through a tip of the end effector scans edges of a plurality of substrates accommodated in a front opening unified pod (FOUP), and compares shape patterns of a measured waveform of an output value continuously changed in the light receiving unit with shape patterns of a reference waveform for comparison according to a relative positional relationship between the light and substrate during the operation of the arm and diagnoses at least one of a state of the substrate, the FOUP, and the end effector based on a comparison result.

  • Patent number: 11332911
    Abstract: Provided is a construction machine that can prevent a machine body from being lowered since a blade is not put into a float state even where a misoperation is made by an operator when the machine body is in a jacked-up state, and that can perform a favorable leveling operation by putting the blade into the float state in accordance with an operator's operation when the machine body is not in the jacked-up state. A hydraulic excavator includes a controller 42 that determines whether or not the machine body is in a jacked-up state and controls a float valve 41. In the case where it is determined that the machine body is not in the jacked-up state, the controller 42 changes over the float valve 41 to a float position V and invalidates an operation of a blade control valve 22, in accordance with a float instruction.

An EGR valve inlet side pressure sensor (22) is provided in an inlet side of an EGR valve (20). A regeneration controller (38C) determines whether or not the filter inlet side pressure sensor (34) is in failure based upon a difference between a pressure value detected by the filter inlet side pressure sensor (34) and a pressure value detected by the EGR valve inlet side pressure sensor (22). When the filter inlet side pressure sensor (34) is in failure, the regeneration controller (38C) performs control of regeneration treatment using a differential pressure calculated based upon a pressure value detected by the EGR valve inlet side pressure sensor (22) and a pressure value detected by the filter outlet side pressure sensor (35).
